TONIGHT: Get Science Right at Halifax Central Library (7 pm)

So much has gone wrong for science over the past decade. Let’s debate how to get it right in the next.

Halifax’s Get Science Right town hall is tonight. It has been in the news: Andrea Gunn wrote an excellent overview for the Chronicle-Herald, and CBC Information Morning interviewed me about it.

Get Science Right was covered by Chronicle-Herald.

I have already posted a backgrounder about what to expect. The event will be structured somewhat differently from last time. We will begin with four short presentations from our panelists, to be followed by an open public discussion.

This just in: Evidence for Democracy (E4D) released the results of its questionnaire on science that it sent to all of our political parties. I expect that Katie Gibbs – E4D’s director and one of tonight’s panelists – will want to talk about it.

Please join us to debate the way forward on science and evidence-based policy-making in Canada.
